Can we all agree Usman is a superior WW to St. Pierre?

    I mean while Georges was decisioning Dan Hardy and Jake Shields back in his prime, today we have Usman finishing Colby, Burns and breaking Woodley(when Tyron was thought to be unbeatable).

    Usman is a better wrestler with a better chin and has way more power than Georges. I don’t see Suburb-Jorge being able to do anything different in the
    upcoming/unnecessary rematch.

    You can not convince me that there is one person out there who legitimately does not think Usman would absolutely mop the floor with St. Pierre.

    Usman is just a better, badder version.

    I think Usman beats GSP in a head to head but GSP still has the superior legacy. Outside of maybe Fedor, Jones, and Anderson, no one has ever achieved what GSP has as far as legacy goes.


    But yes. Usman is a beast and the game is constantly evolving.

    I’m really interested to see what evidence you have to support usman being a better wrestler. I think the only two categories up for debate are possibly cardio and strength. Giving that edge to usman isn’t ridiculous. But GSP is CLEARLY the better wrestler.

    Yes. The game has evolved. In a prime vs prime fight, Usman destroys GSP.

    No. Usman’s wall and stall is possibly better, but GSP’s all round MMA wrestling is superior.

    "Current champ must be best ever derp"

    Haven't heard that before.

    By the way, Jake Shields >>> anyone Usman has ever fought. He's a top 5 WW all time

    How do you figure that? Because GSP took down the great Nick Diaz and did virtually no damage?

    {<huh}

    I mean while Usman was decisoning Emil Meek, 40 year old Maia, and career journeyman Masvidal, GSP was finishing Bisping at a higher weight class, BJ Penn and breaking Josh Koshcheck (when Koscheck looked unbeatable)

    GSP is a better wrestler with a better chin and is way more well rounded than Usman.

    You can not convince that there is one person out there who legitimately does not believe that GSP mops the floor with Usman.
